Grief and Loss Specialist

Jill Attree

Hi, I’m Jill and I live on the South Coast in Poole, Dorset. I believe that we were never created to live a life of depression, guilt, sadness or shame. If you feel your life is not as happy as you want it to be and you feel stuck, not sure which way to turn, I would love to help you find happiness again.

In 2013 I suffered the most devastating loss. My sister died suddenly, with no warning. I was left with an overwhelming feeling of loss and a sadness in my heart like I had never felt before. I just switched to automatic pilot, desperately trying to hold things together and be strong for others whilst grieving myself. I felt completely overwhelmed, I was exhausted from constantly ‘wearing my mask’ so others would think I could cope. I needed help.


So my life changing journey began and I qualified as a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist in 2018. Whilst training I began to realise that everything made sense, I wasn’t going mad, I was grieving. My lightbulb moment was actually realising my grief wasn’t just for my sister. My pain, heartache and shame was for a significant emotional loss caused by a life event that I had ignored for many years. From that moment I knew that I didn’t want others to feel they had to live a life full of sadness, pain, shame or embarrassment.


My passion to support others grew stronger and in 2019 I qualified as an Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist.


I am available for one-to-one support, workshops and speaking opportunities.


In 2020 I was honoured to be awarded Grief Recovery Specialist of the year - an incredibly proud moment in my life.
